Can he get a “HELL, YES!”

photographed by Joshua McDonald, ROGUE Film Co.

Danica, of Weston, and Adam, of Sewickley, Pennsylvania, met on Bumble in 2015. Eight months later, Adam sent Danica a text while she was at work and asked her to take an Uber to an undisclosed location.

She took a 30-minute ride into the Rocky Mountains and arrived at a beautiful park where Adam and her best friend, a photographer, were waiting. At that moment, she knew what was about to happen and couldn’t stop smiling.

After what felt like the longest stroll through a park ever (ok, maybe it took all of five minutes), Adam got down on one knee and asked Danica if she would marry him. Her response: “HELL, YES!”

The couple got married in a laid-back and nontraditional lunchtime ceremony at 11,212 feet on the Wedding Deck at the top of Aspen Mountain in Aspen, Colorado. Marie-Margot Couture created the bride’s custom lace wedding gown, which Danica designed herself with off-the-shoulder bell sleeves.  The groom’s brown herringbone suit complemented the natural and earthy tones of the venue.

The ceremony was performed by Danica’s older brother, and her younger brother served as the ring and dog bearer. After being pronounced newlyweds, the couple rode a gondola down the mountain.

The reception was held in the Aspen Mountain Club, with panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. The couple designated each table as a type of crystal and then provided crystals to their guests to share in the good energy of the day.

In lieu of a wedding cake, Adam and Danica served a variety of Voodoo Doughnuts. Both of the couple’s parents gave toasts, followed by a toast from Danica’s little brother, Abia. The couple shared their first dance to “Swept Away” by the Avett Brothers.

After a reception filled with joyful dancing and singing, guests loaded into the gondola before an after-party on the Shadow Mountain Terrace at the Limelight Hotel in Aspen. Adam and Danica traveled to Costa Rica for their honeymoon before returning to Denver, where they reside.
